Shambhu’s “Dreaming of Now” – Bill Atkinson Cover Reveal

We’re excited to reveal the cover from Shambhu’s upcoming CD, “Dreaming of Now”- a remarkable image by Bill Atkinson, a photographer and renowned developer of Apple. We want to offer special thanks to Bill Atkinson for offering this image for use on “Dreaming of Now.”

Bill has spent more than forty years refining his vision as a photographer – hiking through forests and deserts; lugging camera gear through rain, mud and snow; seeking out the special light that reveals hidden beauty. Through intimate landscapes and close-up details, Atkinson’s photographs highlight and celebrate the wonders of nature.

As a member of the original Macintosh team at Apple Computer, Atkinson designed much of the initial Macintosh user interface and wrote the original QuickDraw, MacPaint and HyperCard software. After years of designing software tools to empower other creative people, Atkinson is now empowered in his own art by the accuracy and creative control made possible by the digital printing process. In recent years, Atkinson has explored the miniature landscapes hidden within stones. By photographing cut and polished rocks he has created an extensive collection of evocative images that look more like abstract paintings than photographs. These photographs are featured in Atkinson’s photography book, “Within the Stone.”

Shambhu added, “I’m so grateful to feature Bill’s beautiful photograph on “Dreaming of Now”. His exquisite photography and transcendent technological achievements embody a perfect perfection which I seek to reflect in my own music and work.”

Special thanks to producer Will Ackerman for the cover concept and to Tyler Nilson for the CD cover design.
